Trust the Prince…

May 17, 2006

Watching The Prince Of Wales: Up Close (ITV1, 9pm) last night and I was struck by how much of an old fart our Charlie isn’t…

Only one minute into the documentry, and it was difficult to stifle a tear when Charles read a letter from one of the young men his Trust had helped. In fact all through the documentary you were reminded of how the Trust has helped people from the Sterophonics to two blokes who used their Trust grant to set up what is now a worldwide, multi-million-pound-earning company.

It was amazing to see how Charles has moved with the times, and has used quite terrible moments in our country’s history to inspire his next venture for the Trust. He is a man who isn’t afraid to give things a go, try new ideas and help our country where our government obviously can’t/won’t/are too busy f*cking themselves/each other to bother/notice.

Oooh, got a bit political there, sorry. But there’s no doubt that Charles has got involved with politics. Just not party politics and for this he is unashamedly proud. He sees it as his duty to help those in this country who (for whatever reason) can’t help themselves and will not apologise for this – “You’d have to have something wrong with you to tour this country and not want to do something,” he said last night. What a man…

    I agree with you on the Prince’s Trust thing. Two brothers in North Wales wanted to set up shop together. They got help from the Prince’s Trust and set up a science fiction shop in Rhyl. Through the shop lots of local SF fans got to know each other and made lots of friends. To date there have been two weddings – the second of them mine!

    So yeah, another person to indirectly thank for meeting Neil… Thank you Prince Charles!

    Problems with Charles Windsor:

    a) He’s bumbled his way through a multi-millionaire’s lifestyle at the expense of the British taxpayer

    b) He talks to plants

    c) It appears that the Stereophonics are his fault
